Michael Mynhardt (2013F) Providing Light for the Underprivileged

Destinyman reports on Michael Mynhard’s entrepreneurial ventures: “Sosa Investments is a renewable energy company that is striving to change lives by donating 50 000 solar-powered lanterns to underprivileged learners Co-founded by Zukile Dube (2013F), Michael Mynhardt (2013F) and Nikolai Mynhardt (30), Sosa Investments specialises in solar energy and aims to empower people by supplying alternative solutions to everyday problems.
Each year, some 3,3 million people die from air pollution worldwide. It’s more fatal than HIV/Aids and malaria combined. Now these young, ambitious innovators are working together to create a country that does not rely on fossil fuels, as well as reduce the impact of indoor air pollution, restricted access to electricity and constrained financial freedom in poorer communities.”
“Africa is one of the largest demographics affected by the lack of clean light,” says Mynhardt. “The current methods used, such as kerosene and candles, are not just outdated and expensive, but pose a huge risk for a catalyst of problems relating to health and environmental impact. The problem is urgent and we have a plausible solution.”
